your at-home skincare routine is far more important than any treatments you’re receiving. while you may get monthly facials, your hands are touching your face the other 30 days. think of it as the diet/exercise rule: 80% is your skincare routine, and 20% are the services you receive

one of the best ways to recharge your skin and keep that post-facial glow is by incorporating a face mask. masks are paramount for keeping your skin in optimal condition and the secret weapon for taking your results to the next level. they’re instant gratification with no down time. however, they’re not a one-size-fits-all, so it’s important you use the right mask for your skin type in order to reap the most benefits

allow us to break it down for you…

clay mask

best for: oily, acne-prone, combination skin
what it does: clay masks are designed to absorb oil, pull impurities from the skin, and tighten pores. however, they can become overly drying, so don’t wait for it to reach the cracking-when-you-smile stage before rinsing *if you have combination skin, only apply this mask to your t-zone and use a cream mask for the dry areas of your face

cream mask

best for: dry skin
what it does: cream masks are especially important for dry skin. they help replenish critical moisture levels and deeply nourish the skin

gel mask

best for: all skin types
what it does: gel masks add water to the skin not oil, so they’re perfect for all skin types. while your skin may have plenty of oil, it could very well be lacking water. and if the skin doesn’t have enough water, it will produce more oil. gel masks work to keep your skin hydrated and balanced; they also help reduce redness and soothe sensitive skin

sheet mask

best for: all skin types
what it does: this k-beauty phenomenon consists of a thin cotton sheet saturated in a serum-based formula to deliver product deep into the skin. they’re designed to hydrate, brighten, nourish, and deliver anti-aging antioxidants. however, they’re not designed to exfoliate or deep clean pores. if you have dry skin, you can use as often as every day (we stick to every other day, schedule permitting) if you have acne-prone or sensitive skin, only use 1x/wk
